I consider the /usr/man to /usr/share/man to be a compatibility
symlink from an old location to a new location.  But I would prefer to
see packages target the preferred locations (where it makes sense
[simple, and can possibly be submitted upsteam]) instead of working
because we have the symlink in place.

(Just adding my $0.02, I've lived with /usr/info and /usr/man for the
last decade.  I suppose I can live with it a little longer)
